    OP - I'm a bloody rugby player and can't do either! Interestingly, the girls on the team that have issues with press ups are the taller ones.. and we consistenly out leg-press everyone else.

    My arms are feeble. Put me in a maul, though, and I can do fine. It's just that kind of isolated strength that I don't have!
    Your upper body is not strong enough, nothing to do with your height.

    haha. I've experienced both sides of OP's situation.

    I used to be weak and fat and ****. I couldn't fathom how I would be able to pull myself off the ground using my arms nor could I manage a real pressup.
    But now... eheheheheheh

    If I can monkey bar and pullup at 345lbs, there is not an excuse for any of you :mad:
    That's impressively heavy.
